From the Foreword by George F. Thompson
The photographs in this remarkable book are full of information about who we are people and who we are a nation. . . . Paula Chamlees vision extends far beyond the High Plains life of a small farm in Texas; there is an implied appreciation for the landscapes of rural America and the ideals they represent. . . . She directs her eye, heart, and soul toward her home place, and that love of place shines through with each photographs beauty, grace, and composition. . . . She conveys to us through the magic and integrity of photography, that truth can be found in beauty and that beauty and knowledge can be found in common places. . . . With this book Paula Chamlee has given us a great gift that can be shared with future generations.
Comments from the Reviewers
Paula Chamlees new book is essential reading and viewing for all of us who look to our roots to comprehend the depth of life in this land called the United States. . . . Her
remarkable portrayal of her familys life on the High Plains is one of the genuinely significant contributions to photography and landscape study in many a year.
I know of no finer evocation of life and land on the Great Plains than Chamlees new book. It belongs alongside the works of Willa Cather.
. . . an absolutely remarkable book. . . . Chamlees photographs in this book are an amazing collection of farm life in the U.S. todayand yesterday. The stark landscape
of the Texas Panhandle is so beautifully captured, we doubt if another book of such a subject can ever be duplicated.
In these photographs Chamlee captures the commonplace on a small farm and somehow makes it universal. . . . High Plains Farm is one of those impossible to describe treasures
that invites you to look again, and again, and again.
High Plains Farm is a remarkable book. This book is a treasure that many people can appreciate, for it captures the extraordinary energy and spirit of a couple who represent the
best in rural American values.
I was reminded of Gods Country and My People by Wright Morris, but in going back to that book, I found the tone to be unexpectedly nostalgic. Chamlees wonderful
photographs are much more incisive.
